Title: From Daddy with Love

I remember like it was yesterday when 38 years ago Joe Cuba let me play with his band and get a taste of this wonderful music. He would continue to let me play with him over that summer. I was hooked. Within a short period of time I was subbing in the bands of Tito Puente, Charlie Palmieri and Kako. I was then asked to join the Tito Puente Orchestra by Jimmy Frisaura (Tito's partner, original lead trumpeter & the man that ran the band behind the scenes-Thank You Jimmy for giving me my first steady job and my big break). That started a 25 year membership in the exclusive club known as the Tito Puente Orchestra (later  also to be known as the Tito Puente Latin-Jazz Ensemble). Other bands and artists I have been closely associated ran the spectrum from  Mongo Santamaria, Celia Cruz, La Lupe, Cheo Feliciano, Eddie Palmieri, Blood Sweat & Tears, Paul Simon, David Byrne, The Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Milly, Jocelyn & Los Vecinos and even Aventura! (Of course I still lead The Bronx Horns, The Eddie Torres Mambo Kings (Dance/Show) Orchestra and Co-Lead The Mambo Legends Orchestra).   There are too many musicians that have helped me along the way, but I appreciate everyone whose path I have come across and learned from. Starting with all of my professors at the U. of Miami School of Music (especially my first 'real' saxophone teacher Kirby Campbell). The legendary George Coleman with whom I had the amazing opportunity to study with on a  summer break during my college years as a result of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. To Bobby Porcelli, Dick Mesa, Mario Rivera, Bobby Nelson, Paquito Pastor, Joe Mannozzi, Louis Bauzo, Jose Madera, Johnny Rodriguez, Sonny Bravo, Jimmy Sabater, Oscar Hernandez & most importantly my dear friend Pete Miranda----you have all been instrumental in my development. - Mitch Frohman.
